Role of Tester in Agile World

In the current economic conditions many organizations strive to continue the trend towards

adopting agile processes to get the benefits like quicker return on investment, better

software quality, and higher customer satisfaction. The survival of the company itself

becomes dependent of the time-to-market, deliver on time to the customer and minimize

costs. As a result, many organizations are now aspiring to adopt agile practices. In this

process, agile testing became a big challenge and the reasons are many which include

mindset of the stakeholders, level of the documentation at the beginning, process setup,

continuous integration set up, metrics, accepting criteria, developers to tester ratio and the

tracking of the test life cycle. Here I am highlighting the major challenges, root causes,

solutions and best practices to be a successful agile tester which essentially leads to benefits

of agile scrum testing. Also there is a focus on agile scrum metrics which are vital in

measuring the agile testing performance.
